Taking a cue from former India shooter Shimon Sharif’s initiative of ‘Online Shooting’, the Kuwait Shooting Federation will be organising the Asian Online Shooting Championship later this month.
Sharif has so far organised six editions of the International Online Shooting Championship (IOSC) and a month-long Online Shooting league (OSL) during the coronavirus-forced lockdown which has attracted the attention of shooting federations from around the world.

The two-day competition, which is due to begin from January 29, is backed by the Asian Shooting Confederation (ASC).
Each country will be allowed three shooters in every discipline. Medals and certificates will be on offer apart from much-needed exposure.
“The competitions will be held according to the ISSF Rules and Regulations,” the letter from the organising body read. All the federations taking part will have to follow strict Covid-19 protocols as per ISSF guidelines.
